Walked past and pushed the wing mirror back out (pushed it in yesterday to make a bit of extra space to walk by as my brother was parked next to it).

Looks like i've done the same, painted calipers, now a nice shiney red, not rust brown. At the same noticed the front drop link broken so more money spent to replace both just in case.
Also priced up to have the wheels re-con'ed in gun metal.
Tryed to find a nice new rear spoiler.

Took her out and gave her a good workout..treated her gently at first to get her warmed up...then slowly but steadily worked the accelerator and clutch...she showed her satisfaction with a few beeps...she got thirsty after the first workout so topped her up with the usual lubricants....then beeped her again....both tired afterwards so I washed her thoroughly in all the right places.....then we went for a spin in the RX 8!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

Drained and flushed the coolant and changed the reservoir for a new one. No more stupid light and can finally open her up without worrying about the effects :D

Big thanks to R8EUG for supplying me with the new bottle.
